Programs at Oliver-Pyatt Centers integrate highly personalized and sophisticated medical, psychiatric, clinical, and nutritional care with comprehensive family support. Our treatment is therapeutically grounded, incorporating state-of-the-art approaches, research, outcome data, and up-to-date medical knowledge, and is creative and flexible as well. A vital part of our in-depth biopsychosocial model of treatment is the patient-therapist relationship, through which the core issues driving the eating disorder—and any co-occurring disorders that accompany it—can be discovered and thoroughly addressed.

Embedded in our culture is a philosophy of collaboration—among our team members and with our patients' outpatient providers. Our experienced bilingual multidisciplinary team takes a holistic approach to get our patients on the path to long-term health and a sustained recovery.

Adjunct programming for co-occurring disorders is a cornerstone of our successful treatment model. We understand the damaging impact of these disorders, and choose the most effective treatments and therapies for each patient based on her personal history and needs.

We believe an important part of residential treatment is preparing our patients for the real world outside of residential treatment. We do this through daily supported exposure therapy, step-down programs, and aftercare planning.
